Hundreds flocked to the Inner Harbor on Friday, May 18 for the inaugural Renzi Food Service Wing Fest. The event is a friendly competition among Syracuse-area restaurants to see, by audience taste-test, who makes the best chicken wing. Local bands, including Under the Gun (pictured below), are slated for a daily lineup, and other food vendors and breweries are on site to drive the “festival” feel home.

Admission is $5, with $1  per wing, and continues on Saturday, May 19.
